I'm not that great about stating a personal ethos like that - it's too complicated and situational to put into words. If I had one it would be something vague like "minimize harm" or the like. Yours sounds pretty good too.And I like enhancing the well being of others and the planet, because we are all connected. I too respect virtues, but I like everything to fit into underlying principles of reality, like how humans work and how ecosystems fit together. Which I have been understanding as Fe-Ti with a dash of Ni. My ethics consist of harmony, balance of power, and preserving and enhancing life (objectively); and (subjectively) being responsible for the consequences of one's actions. I figure you can't go wrong there.
Yeah, that's something that bothers me too. All you can do is bring a little method to the madness - IMO there isn't a full-proof ethical system.It does kind of bother me that there is so much situational variability- but that's the beauty of life, I suppose. It provides us with an opportunity to learn and grow in consciousness.
Ugh, it can be annoying. Sometimes it's fun because it's nice to explore the why of things; other times it drives me crazy because it's so laborious to do so and feels like redundant information.Indeed, there were times in math I would know the answer but not be able to work up the how.
By the end of high school it made nearly all maths very frustrating, and I started to lose interest in trying to prove answers. Plus, it seemed that more than one pathway was acceptable, and I had no parameters to discern which was most relevant, or why there should be more than one, or even what the purpose of each math was.
Answers would seem instinctively correct to me, but unlike people stuff, there was no value I could look at to help me decide which path to take. No "gut feeling", no sense of how that balances in the universe, somehow.
Yes, it is hard to define the nature of that. I like that image, "elastic concrete".I find it fascinating to look inside myself and engage with the highly elastic yet rigidly concrete aspect of such things, and how the nuances have evolved over time, how I have evolved. I can't even put that into words, really. At least not at the moment, and I don't know if I really even want to attempt it. It won't be the same, transferred from images and feelings into words.
